He's After Me by Chris Higgins
Goodreads synopsis:
Anna's bruised and upset by the collapse of her parents' marriage. So much of the fallout - including responsibility for her wayward younger sister - seems to be heading in her direction. All she wants is to get the exam results she needs to get herself to university - and away from this mess. She certainly wants nothing to do with boys - until Jem appears. Gradually he wins her trust, and becomes everything Anna needs him to be. 
But Anna's about to discover that love stories don't always have happy endings... 

I saw this one at work a few weeks ago, and ever since I've not been able to decide whether or not to buy it. I keep picking it up, flicking through it, and then putting it back down.
But I've been told by fellow readers and Waterstones employees alike that it's a really good, teen thriller, so it does sound like something I would enjoy - and like it might be something a little bit different from the usual YA stuff.
When I've shifted some more off the TBR mountain, that I can think about picking this up, and then bringing it home with me. Fingers crossed for later on this year!
